Wink It's the Little Things..... Keep an Eye Out!

A long time ago, AP was in the transport game and one day, hopping into a very unassuming Falcon Forte (or was it a GLi) I noticed something a little strange. The car just seemed different and when loading the thing up the underside of the engine had a few very minor changes to the sump.

Well, curiosity may have killed the cat but AP lives on this stuff. Popping the bonnet revealed a nice Direct Ignition (Coil-on-plug) six, although it was apparently still single cam. And we now see on Barra the 182 etc has this setup.

It makes you wonder how many small details are up for the begging if people paid attention....... If only I had seen a V8 which would have been of infinitely more interest.

Oh, keep an eye out but do as I did - say nothing where Holden and other competition can see or hear!
